Re-cycling The Office Wear

Never step out of the house in boring clothes!

The thing about being a working-woman is that you don’t have many outfit options to wear at work. You have to be dressed formally and presentably no matter what and NO wild colors allowed. Unless you are working in a job environment, which permits feminine dresses or Indian wear. But we all know offices are quite intolerant when it comes to women’s fashion. This makes our wardrobe quite boring and at times we may find ourselves in a position which every girl is most sorrowfully aware of – the state of having ‘nothing to wear’. However, with simple tips and tricks you can change your formal wardrobe into a wardrobe of a fashionista so that you can strut your stuff on those ‘out-of-office’ occasions. Keep reading to find out how…

Recycling the office wear

Buy some hot shorts

Shorts can bring in the sex appeal to your normal boring shirts/blouses. Wear subtle colors such as denim, black or white lace for daytime and wear the sequined shorts or vibrant colors for those stormy party nights.

2

Wear a statement necklace

Wear your normal pant and shirt and add a touch of glamour by teaming it up with a statement necklace. It will surely bring in the femininity your outfit so desired.

3

Skirting the issue

A cute pencil skirt can make your whole outfit alive. You can even wear this combination to work without coming off too informal. So show off your legs and make every other girl jealous of your wardrobe.

4

Colorful blazers

Blazers in bright colors such as red, green, blue, etc. may not be allowed in some work places but you can definitely wear them at those work lunches with clients on a breezy weekend. You’ll look chic, casual and yet absolutely professional.

5

A dress shirt

Steal your partner’s over-sized shirt, team it up with a sleek belt and some stockings (Ditch the stockings if you’re feeling bold and if the shirt isn’t too short) and go out for a romantic brunch. Let your hair loose and show them that you know your stuff.

6

Invest in a good pant-suit

Pant-suits are in vogue this season. From our very own desi girl Priyanka Chopra to Hollywood’s pretty little liar Ashley Benson, everyone is donning this powerful outfit. Pair them up with gladiators or pumps and you’re good to go. Loose the jacket and you’re set for the evening.

Philips Air Straightener – Review

Don’t believe everything you see on Television

So after being inspired by the Alia Bhatt Ad, I bought the Philips Air Straightener and I have to say that it was one of the most regretful decisions I have ever made so far. The product was certainly not what I thought it to be. How I wish I had bought the old-school flat iron!

Philips Air Straightener Review

I ordered the product on Flipkart and it arrived after 2 days of making the payment (Great Going Flipkart!). The product came in a well-packed Flipkart carton, properly bubble wrapped, et al. Inside there was the product in its original packing as shown in the picture below:

The product comes in two parts, the body (i.e. the dryer) and the paddle brush attachment. The paddle brush is easy to attach and remove. The only thing I liked about this product was that it is an extremely good-looking styler with its black body and gold detailing. However, it does feel a bit cheap and inefficient due to its light-weight. It is even lighter than your standard hair dryer.

The product is easy to use. It has two power modes – low and high, and only one button just like a dryer. In fact, if you use the body without the brush it will act as a dryer.

My experience with the product was not so good. The reasons –

  • It made my hair extremely frizzy after the use in spite of the fact that the product claims to leave the hair “frizz free” and smooth due to its Kerashine coating (TRUTH: Kerashine and Keratine is a marketing hoax).
  • It did not straighten my hair at all (again in spite of claiming to be a ‘straightener’). It merely left my wavy hair a little less wavy and not in a good way I must add.
  • The ‘little less wavy awkward hair-do’ doesn’t last long. The effect wears off within an hour. I don’t like using hair products such as hair sprays and mousse on my hair so I dunno if using these will help to retain the effect.

Other things aside, the main reason I don’t like this product is because of the way it is marketed. If it had been introduced as ‘new improved hair dryer’, I would have loved it. Because it is an extremely easy to use hair dryer and very effective too; but it is definitely NOT a hair straightener. And as my requirement was for a less damaging hair STRAIGHTENER I was left disappointed. For the same amount of money, I could have bought best-in-class flat-iron. Sigh! Now all I have is 3 hair dryers!
